Two local men were arrested on allegations they had equipment used to manufacture methamphetamine.

Jeffrey P. Vogel, 42, of 724 Maplewood St., Willard, and Billy J. Kilgore, 36, of 3638 May Road, Plymouth, each are charged with illegal assembly or possession of chemicals for the manufacture of drugs. Vogel also faces one count of tampering with evidence. If convicted of the third-degree felonies, they face nine months to three years in prison.

The charges are in connection with a Willard traffic stop related the vehicle having a loud exhaust Wednesday, Norwalk Assistant Law Director Scott Christophel said.

The Willard Police Department received assistance from the Huron County Sheriff's Office, METRICH Drug Task Force and agents Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation. BCI agents and METRICH officers helped process the evidence and clean up the suspected meth lab.

"There were chemicals used to manufacture methamphetamine," Christophel said.

Methamphetamine is a highly addictive illegal stimulant often cooked in homes with flammable components.

Authorities seized the suspected drug items for testing. Citing the ongoing investigation, Christophel declined to say how many items there were.

However, a prepared statement from police shed some light on the traffic stop that happened at 11:22 p.m. when officers stopped a minivan with three people inside.

"Officers reported that one of the occupants dumped suspected anhydrous ammonia and other unknown compounds inside the vehicle and onto the roadway in an attempt to dispose of the contents," Chief Mark Holden said.

Willard Fire & Rescue responded. Holden said the firefighters had to set up a "decon unit" to decontaminate the occupants.

"The third person has not yet been charged with a criminal offense," the chief added.

More stupid thoughts from the peanut gallery


... and druggie Mexicans don't do their own kin and have all their teeth? And don't bring a lot of drugs across the borders?

Really? BullshiP!

stupid thoughts

they have to bring it across the border because the demand from toothless hillbillies out numbers the toothless mexicans 20 to 1....take a look at all the past drug related crimes and dealings in the area, not very many mexicans on there. just a bunch of white welfare recipients who have lost their kids and freedom. one thing we all know about mexicans is that they dont abandon their families, they all live together. im sorry starryeyes i shouldnt have made fun of your brother.


What brother?

They don't abandon? Really, Stupid, And what to you call 100,000 minors illegally invading our Southern Border on their own?

A taco rally?

Lemme guess- MY tax dollars funded your food, medical, shelter and schooling. Isn't that right? Hell, your own country abandoned you poor suckers and didn't want you down there isn't that right?

stupid thoughts

i highly doubt you pay any taxes...there is not very many productive meth heads....and those aren't stars in your eyes its flash burn from lighting your pipe so often....yep shame on me for being born here, "my country", i was born right here in town probably the same place you were. my kids were,my grandkids were,so "my country" is the same as yours, and yes it has abandoned me by giving piece of crap racist meth heads more of a free ride than those who work their a s s e s off. I'm paying my way through life and work hard for what i have. you could go to school also if you wanted. programs are out there for everyone you just have to look. if you spent half the time you spend looking for welfare and loopholes in the system for a free ride and blaming hard working people regardless of their race you could live the life you wanted to and wouldn't have to hate on me. that's ok though its fun, i could argue with a meth head who just lost her brother and husband all day!


um stupid, you might want to read this. LOL


stupid thoughts

ok, you can not even try to compare these facts with our town...your trying to compare statistics to a city of 9 million people. a city where the black and hispanic community makes up 38% of the population. 65% of the population is foreign white. over 500 different languages are spoke in new york city. now lets take norwalk, cuz that is the town I'm talking about, where 3% of the population is hispanic and 96% is white out of a population of 16,500 people. now statistically speaking i would have to say that of the rapes, child abuse, violent crimes, drug dealing, drug buying, robberies, drug over doses and suicides, are committed, 95% of the time in this area, by white people.....argue that all you want!


police have redefined the word lab,now breaking bad was a lab


Wrong, with the right chemicals, meth can be produced "cold" from the trunk of a vehicle. So they are are correct. The end product isn't as potent as that of something cooked a "Breaking Bad" lab.


i think they are innocent..


I don't know any [hillbillies] that act this way.

stupid thoughts

well skunks dont smell their own stink


Neither do Mexicans, apparently, but you can always smell when they're around for the rancid grease stench they give off, from a good 15 feet away.

stupid thoughts

true that, and if you look anything like your brother up there, I'm sure you haven't bathed in a while. smelling like a stinky meth head

Dr. Information

These two have been in trouble since birth. Nothing new from the loser gallery.


Why do people from Willard area look like they are the walking dead.


Most druggies look alike fool. Are you looking at all the articles in the Reflector or just the ones from out of town? There are plenty of strung out pieces of burned toast right here in Norwalk. Tuffnutts my rear end.
